Japan opts to skip 2020 World Wrestling Championship due to Covid-19 fears

The 2020 World Wrestling Championship was scheduled to take place in Belgrade, Serbia, on December 12 -20.

The Japan Wrestling Federation announced on October 30 that they would not send a team to the 2020 World Championships scheduled to be hosted by Serbia’s Belgrade in December, taking into account the safety for the wrestlers amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The reasons the federation noted include the surge in Covid-19 infections in Europe as well as the fact that the arena that will be the venue for the event in the capital of Serbia is being used as a makeshift hospital for the coronavirus patients.

At the World Championships last year in Nur-Sultan, Japan won three gold medals and nine overall. Besides Japan, the United States also has announced that it would skip this year’s event.

Although coronavirus infections continue to spread in Japan, the condition has been largely contained with nationwide adherence to countermeasures, including mask wearing. Earlier this month, national-level competitions have been resumed for the first time since February.

With the global calendar rescheduled by the pandemic, the 2020 World Championships were planned to take place on December 12-20 in Belgrade. Unluckily, that schedule overlapped with the set dates of December 17-20 for the All-Japan Championships. Although most top wrestlers indicated that they would have opted to take part in the World Championships; now that choice has been eliminated.

Global coronavirus crisis

In late December of last year, Chinese officials informed the WHO about the outbreak of an unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan. After that, cases of the novel coronavirus, later named Covid-19 by the WHO, have been reported in all corners of the world.

The WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020. The latest statistics show that more than 47,457,200 people from all over the world have been infected.

United World Wrestling Update to Events for 2021

The United World Wrestling (UWW) has updated its event calendar for the next year’s season in order to reflect all recent adjustments made due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on a wide variety of international sporting events.

In order to add the Continental and World Qualifiers, the Continental Championships will be scheduled at the very beginning of the year. Since the Senior Pan-American Continental Qualifiers took place in 2019, the Continental Championships is scheduled to be held at the end of May.

The Continental Championships schedule

From 29 to 31 of January: Oceania Championships, Pago Pago, ASA

From 02 to 07 of February: African Championships, Marrakech, MAR

From 08 to 14 of February: European Championships, Katowice, POL

In addition, the Cadet World Championships were moved to the end of July of next year in order to not interfere with the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games. There won’t be one full month between the Cadet World Championships and the Cadet Continental Championships. However, the deadline related to the registrations is still the same.

The Junior Pan-American Games has also newly announced that will be also organized in 2021. The qualification event for the Junior Pan-American Games will be the Cadet Pan-American Championships that will have to be organized earlier to allow enough time for the registration or the accreditation process. It has also been agreed that Argentina will host cadet and junior Pan-American Championships at the same time to reduce the cost of the Federations.

WWE – Brutal sport or “bloody” play?

WWE has always been a really exciting and aggressive program

Years back, WWE also had to age limits and be banned from screening in certain countries because it was too bad.

Is WWE acting, or is that real? 

First of all, I would like to say that WWE is pro wrestling and pro wrestling means acting. However, WWE is a class game that has deceived the childhood of many people. 

Wrestlers are actors in the pit, but they are still true risk-takers.” Their “acting” job demands peace and of course, adventure.

If it’s an act, then the blood of the wrestler is fake? 

Interestingly enough the blood of the wrestlers is their own blood. Wrestlers also use specially designed razor blades to create a slight cut in the forehead to produce blood. Owing to the overhead cut and the extreme power of the engine, the blood kept running down the faces of the wrestlers. It is also a testament to making life tough for a professional wrestler. 

The referees who tend to be “making scenes” in WWE are the “supporting performers” who essentially back the “acting” scenes of the wrestlers. From endorsing the involvement in “acting,” the referees also secretly send “props” to the wrestlers.

If it’s just acting, so why are there winners, losers, decent ones, bad guys? 

While acting, the leadership of the WWE must still have a headache when choosing how to star-called push. When the board agrees to “push” someone up, WWE authors will write a script for the next events to promote the name of the wrestler. Take the title, for example, to win the SummerSlam, Royal Rumble. 

In the pro wrestling industry, this creates a paradox. Most wrestlers always play a “loser” part, the “hateful” and the “poor” are typically really kind people outside the game. Since they’re kind, they’re able to play the evil part and embrace loss so that they can bring other colleagues up.

Recently, iconic wrestler Undertaker has left many fans unhappy when he revealed that he would withdraw from the broadcast of the documentary “The Last Journey.” According to Undertaker, this is the best moment for him to pause and be pleased with what he did.

But at this stage in my career, I don’t want to go back to the arena … I’ve got a hole in my stomach right now.” Undertaker said.

“Death” said he was out of inspiration in the Upper Station after more than three decades of remaining with the artists. However, in case the WWE still needed him, Undertaker left the prospect of returning.

Is American Wrestling (WWE) true or is it performing?

Professional wrestling is a form of success wrestling. Unlike competitions, it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose in professional wrestling, because winning or losing is decided by the scriptwriter (called “booker”). 

But the “booker” just determines who’s going to win and how to win. If “Booker” decides that “Superstar” A will clearly win “Superstar” B, or win by cheating, or someone to help …

Every wrestler is called a “superstar,” the female is called a “diva.” Wrestlers all have a way to end the game, like John Cena with AA (Attitude Adjustment) or Shawn Michaels with “SCM” (Sweet Chin Music). 

After the wrestlers use their own maneuvers, they can execute “Pin Fall” (count to 3) in order to win. Victory can also be obtained by making a main move to compel the enemy to surrender (submission). Kurt Angle’s “Ankle Lock” is a “submission”.

These movements sometimes appear invincible, but when struck, the wrestlers use tricks to shield the opponent from injury. When a professional wrestler pretends to be in pain after he’s hit, he ‘s called a “sell a move.” 

In professional wrestling, it can be said that there is no wrestler, only “character,” every “character” tries to create a different appearance, personality, and must register different “moves” to avoid duplication. While sports such as boxing, athletes practice skills that cause harm to each other, professional wrestlers practice skills that help each other and protect each other during performance to avoid injury.

Wrestlers who have signed with a company may have tales to “clash” with each other. The “conflict” between the “superstar” A and the “superstar” B will continue for a few weeks, if it is admired by the audience. Usually in normal shows, they use this time to build up a conflict for more excitement, then there will be a big show match (called “Pay Per View”).

Reading here, you will also know if American wrestling is actual or is acting 

But even though it’s an act, American wrestling also gives us a sense of charm and suspense, making the viewer feel like watching a long action movie with exciting details …
